Santo Daime, La Religion de la Floresta

Santo Daime, the Religion of the Forest

Santo Daime is a syncretic religion originating in Brazil that uses ayahuasca ('daime') as a sacrament. In this episode of 'Voices of Ayahuasca', produced by Iñaki Berazaluce and Aitor Biedma, we trace the origins and history of this spiritual movement and speak with members of the Santo Daime church in Spain.

The series is directed by journalist Iñaki Berazaluce and produced by The Hard Men Path. It began in early 2023 as a line of defense for ayahuasca "in response to ongoing attacks on ayahuasca practices by the Spanish police and certain media outlets," according to the director of 'Voices of Ayahuasca'.
